Empowerment/Enterprise Zones

The Empowerment Zones/Enterprise Communities (EZ/EC) program is a federal government-wide effort to enable the self-revitalization and growth of distressed urban and rural areas throughout the nation. In December 1994, 105 socio-economically distressed areas were designated to receive focused federal assistance based on strategic plans for economic and human development. The EZ/EC designees are receiving flexible grants through a special provision in the SSBG Program, tax incentives, and a commitment of additional types of Federal support to implement these plans over a ten-year period.
